Beautiful fish n chips. I had mine with skinny fries, mushy peas in a cute mini saucepan and handmade tartare sauce. Mother-in-law loved hers with hand cut chips.

Excellent food in the restaurant and so pleasing for it to be tasty. Staff cannot do more and attention given to us, with a smile, was very good. A good cellar is noted and the prices are very good indeed.
